Interior Design – This Warm & Bright Family Home Will Make You Rethink Modern Design

2140 ratings | 274180 views
Joe and Sarah Knight of blackLAB architects inc. open up their cool, contemporary family home. See how they converted a 1940s house into a sleek and modern space thats cozy, inviting and kid-friendly. The original layout consisted of small, dark rooms, so an open floor plan was the first step to modernize the interior. Adding a courtyard with floor-to-ceiling windows to the back of the home helped bring in natural light. They also warmed up the black and white palette with walnut flooring and millwork, as well pops of playful color for the kids. These accents create a space that has all the elements of modern design – an open floor plan, a monochromatic palette – yet is beautifully livable.

Warm: NOT! Living in this environment would make me somewhat suicidal.

Any house starts to use Black and White and Wooden suddenly becomes “modern”,” Magazine style”. Come on guys, stop copying start to have your own characters.

Not a fan of buying an old property and then destroying the original interior completely.

All these modern designs and new builds always go for the open plan living dining arrangement and it looks amazing true but I can't help but think how impractical it is compared to the way my family and most families I know live.

Ahhhhhh another freakin' modern house 🏡. I will give them points for using some colours, however this trend is comparable to the 80's and over the top glam that lasted about 10 years. This aesthetic like the 80's will DIE as well, except this look is sterile and without personality!!! BORING!!!

Very Cool! I love it when people throw a dash of color here and there.

The only thing I actually like is the dining room, flooring, stairs, bathroom, and all the office chairs. Everything else is just way to stark

I like this house. It has color but not too much color and it doesn't have too much clutter. Some people find too much color and too many objects annoying, so this is a good home if you are that type of person. I think this house looks relaxing. Thumbs up H&H!

Putting chairs--when you have children--in front of a GLASS PANEL is one of the most stupid design ideas I think I've seen yet. One kick and BAM! Shattered glass, broken crockery and blood everywhere. I can only hope that's plexiglass.

It depends on the age of the children. It could also be a danger to drunk adults so I agree this is not a good design for everyone but I think if you don't have babies or toddlers this is probably okay.

really loved d design......i think white doesnt make it drab....d use of colors here n there add life to d interiors..

I really like the idea and the design. I actually like how the exterior and the interior are completely different. It would be really fun to see people's faces when walk in. What I'm not so into is all of the pillows, the primary coloured plates/china under the island and that blue occasional chair. I get that it is a family home but I feel like they bring the look down a few notches and give it a fisher price/ IKEA dinning hall / nursery school sort of a feel. That being said, the second floor is stunning! And those stairs!! Beautiful!

GORGEOUS!!! I LOVE what they've done to this house. stunning!!

People need to understand that you can't have stuff like tiles and flooring and backsplash and appliances in all the colors of the rainbow. Colors can always be added with upholstery and pillows and nick nacks. It's easy to bring in change of themes if your backdrop is white

I normally like modern,but this was a bit too stark cold...warmth was missing...they needed more pop colors and greeery ..to cosy it up.

That house is just way too cold now. It is not warm or inviting, Ugly comes to mind, The pictures of the house before the renovation look quite nice. I'd much sooner live there than in that white spaces.

Always wondered what it would look like to have a traditional front and modern interior and back for my own home. Seeing yours, I think it works perfectly!

Why does this channel always use the term 'Warm' for designs that are anything but?
Aki Kolehmainen (5 months ago)
When you are shown something and then someone else needs to tell you that it's "gorgeous" or "perfect" or "warm", then it probably is not.

rosensindrot (2 years ago)
It's to unpersonal and sterile for my taste..but maybe in day to day life it looks a bit more lived-in

Does modern always mean stark white?
hassan khokhar (11 months ago)
blue0frangi not really, this house might make it so stark but I’ve seen many wonderful modern houses which look great and have barely any stark colours in it
Lyon Still (1 year ago)
I find white to be too stark. I'm not a fan of white walls but I think a warmer white would have been better. I still find this home to feel very cold.
Sandy G 323 (2 years ago)
I think white is used a lot because it's calming to the eye. It's also easy to change out accessories with white that's why I think it's pretty trendy right now.
Ryanne Gibson (2 years ago)
modern is usually monotone colours or mute tones. It's usually clean and sleek and open. It's about lightness and how your eye moves throughout the room. White does play a big part but it's not due to lack of creativity
nadiainthesky (2 years ago)
+blue0frangi To too many people without better creativity... sadly yes
